Alternative dispute resolution is always top-of-mind. My experience in the past decade with university governance, legal research, labour and employment law, and legislative procedure gives me a range of tools that I may deploy to your advantage.

I bring experience with both sides of employment and labour relations as a union president and an employer-side researcher to arbitration. I apply this firsthand knowledge to adjudicate disputes in a timely and thoroughly researched fashion.

My approach is client-focused and is in line with my forthcoming doctoral work on freedom of conscience and judges’ and arbitrators’ roles in shaping context-specific solutions to disputes.

I am also well-read in burgeoning contract, labour, and employment issues associated with Industry 4.0 through academic and journalistic research. Manufacturing and skilled labour will be increasingly displaced by automata. 3D printing, machine learning, and artificial intelligence will radically change working life. I am equipped to tackle these issues alongside more traditional arbitral concerns.

My publications and experience with university administration also make me an ideal arbitrator for academic disputes.
